Travellers Choose Long Haul Holidays Over Short Haul

Recent data released by Gatwick Airport shows that the number of people visiting long haul destinations increased, despite the overall decline of holiday sales. Long haul destinations grew by 11.3% despite there being a total drop of 1.3% to 1.7 million, in the overall travel market.

These figures are surprising with the recent riots in Bangkok deterring travellers to this region.

The strength of the pound wasn’t enough to encourage more travellers to North America; surprisingly there was a 12% decrease in those travelling to the USA.

This proves that travellers are choosing to get as far away from home stresses as they can. Long haul destinations like Mauritius and the Maldives are the ideal luxury holiday destination, with picture perfect landscapes and once in a life time activities.
